passx Fleuger99, one other thing iíll Add that will affect the CC, and that is to take the rear brake lever off and clean it and itís pivot, maybe take some very fine sandpaper or scotchbright to it, clean it well and relube with some moly grease so it wonít stick.

Fleuger99 I swung by a small Yamaha dealer in Killeen TX, about 45 minute ride away, giving me a nice ride. Seeing as the CC indicator light was flashing figured it must have been leaving an error code which would help me narrow down the cause of my issue. I spoke to the service writer there who I've chatted with before. He said they could check the codes for me and let me know what they find. So there were several of the same codes, coming from my front brake lever and clutch lever, which supported the feedback you guys had been providing.

They offered to take apart the two levers, clean and relube them for $35 which I felt was reasonable. Took them thirty minutes and I had them also do my state inspection as I need to renew my registration this month. Riding home I went through downtown Killeen and into the traffic. My bike was running up to 220F which is when I usually have issues with the CC. I cycled it several times and no issues so it looks like my problem has been resolved.

Thank you all for the feedback and suggestions.

Acpantera My cc "set" light would not come on sometimes(cc wouldn't engage) Rear brake lever wasn't returning all the way(just a smidge), I had to toe it up to get the cc to engage. Took the the lever and pivot apart, cleaned and lubed, works like a champ.

Maximum throttle for a minute! You must have been flying!

That is the usual source of my CC problem. A simple way to check is to bump your front brake lever outward. If the problem clears, that was the source of your problem.

That switch is on the bottom of the instrument cluster, right side obviously and it's held in by a single phillips head screw. Get some contact cleaner as Ray suggested and once removed, you'll see a spring on one end. I shot the contact cleaner in there and it seemed to resolve my issue. Until of course, it gets gummed up again. Cover your tank!! You don't want that contact cleaner on painted parts or at least I wouldn't want to risk it.
Good to know and thanks for the info. I'll give it a try this weekend.

ECU is confused with intermittent/incorrect electrical signals from the sensors or an intermittent switch... ignition cycle usually resets that part of it.
Sensors are in the wheel hubs/aluminum ABS adapter plate, held by one screw.
